This is the third book in the nine book Bone series by Jeff Smith.  A great addition to this series, I thought this was the best book yet. 

The Bones are still in the valley trying to eke out a living.  In the beginning of the story they are all helping Thorne and Gma rebuild their house.  Smiley Bone and Phoney Bone eventually have to leave to settle their debts in town.  A surprising secret is revealed about Thorne's identity and Fone Bone and her are plunged deeper into a strange quest.

I loved this book.  Loved how the storyline is starting to tie together and how the plot is thickening.  There are a lot of great characters here, it is a lot of fun to read and at times very funny.  This book wasn't as humorous as previous ones, there are more dark things happening here...but it was still a lot of fun.

Overall still loving this series of graphic novels.  Wonderful drawings and a wonderful storyline that keeps getting more interesting and complex.  Can't wait to read the next book in this series.
